Today, the Replica Watches retailer is presenting a special edition of the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic, in red gold and, of course, with a blue dial.
This new 88-piece of the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Replica Watches for Bucherer is obviously no more than a visual update of an existing watch, with a new case material and a new dial colour to be precise – which doesn’t prevent us to be pleased by this overall good looking watch.
In addition to the other existing blue watches, the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Bucherer Blue Editions now combine an 18k red gold case – something that already exits – IWC Replica Watches with a blue dial – something that also exists in the collection. It is the combination of these two that makes this watch special to Bucherer, as the blue dial is usually reserved for the steel case – under the ref. IW390303. The case of this blue edition is the same size, meaning 42mm in diameter x 14.2mm in height.
Here, the main update concerns the addition of gold-coloured hands, applied indices and numerals to the dial, in order to be consistent with the case material. Overall, the IWC Replica contrast between the warm gold case and the cold blue dial is satisfying. One small detail: the date disc is matching the dial and isn’t painted in white. It is paired with a brown Santoni alligator strap.
